IFRO

The city charms you out of any mood of protest or anger or hopelessness. It is a city of sky and water, of stone lions and sphinxes gazing out over the Neva River, of delicate iron grillwork hanging over the canals, of sunsets that paint the riverfront houses with tender violet and pink.

This is a short game with three puzzles, each of which seems well implemented. The text is well written, but mostly exists just to give flavour to the puzzles, which is fine if that's the kind of game you enjoy.

It's hard not to like this game. It has a certain amount of charm. I'm not a puzzle fiend, so I glanced at the walkthrough once or twice, but I found it quite enjoyable. The intro really shines as a piece of scene setting for the game.

Unfortunately, there's one or two problems that slightly detract. I may have missed something, but "zap" didn't occur to me as the right verb for using the wand. Additionally, there's some problems with newlines sometimes not being printed after text. These are fairly minor woes, though. I'd have also appreciated "disconnect all" being implemented.
